To help its members keep up with food safety, the Washington State Horticultural Association is offering Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point training.

Tree fruit industry association members can have reduced registration fee for the two-day session, scheduled for Aug. 17-18 in Ellensburg, Wash.

The association is offering the training through its GRAS2P program, a tree fruit industry grower-based program that offers audit readiness, use of good agricultural practices in orchards and establishment of sustainability practice standards.

The GRAS2P program provides economic, environmental and educational solutions to help assure safe Washington fruit production, according to a news release.

Washington State University professor and extension food science specialist Richard Dougherty is slated to conduct the training. 

To register, contact the Washington State Horticultural Association at (509) 665-9641, extension 811 or by e-mail at gras2p@wahort.org.
